A Completed Challenge: The Classics Club, Round One

On March 7, 2017, I joined The Classics Club and made a commitment to read 50 books in 5 years. I just posted my 50th review and completed this challenge!

I loved the reading I did for this challenge, and because I enjoyed it so much, and because there are endless classics to read, I’ll be signing up in the next few days for another 50 books in 5 years!  Watch for my post: Classics Club-Round 2!

You can click here to see my Classics Club-Round 1, with the list of the books I read and the links to my reviews.

Woohoo!!   And now… back to my reading!

“Figure in Backlight”, by Pietro Scoppetta, Italian 1863-1920

Virginia Woolf: They Have Loved Reading

I have sometimes dreamt that when the Day of Judgment dawns and the great conquerors and lawyers and statesmen come to receive their rewards — their crowns, their laurels, their names carved indelibly upon imperishable marble — the Almighty will turn to Peter and will say, not without a certain envy when He sees us coming with our books under our arms, “Look, these need no reward. We have nothing to give them here. They have loved reading.”

Today we celebrate Virginia Woolf who was born on this day in 1882.
